Hiking in the woods with Kevin is like flipping through the pages of a nature encyclopedia. Take a hike with him and he’ll show you how to identify the fauna and flora, how to deal with bears and bugs, watch nature’s weather forecasts, track, pack light, travel safe, navigate, and generally thrive instead of survive out in the wilderness.  You will need to purchase a day use fee for Algonquin Park from Pine Grove Point Campground.  Suitable for adults, teens, and children  8 yrs +.  No dogs please. Be sure to wear sturdy footwear and bring a lunch and beverages.
